Iraq to rebuild notorious prison


news.bbc.co.uk

Iraq says it plans to rebuild the notorious Abu Ghraib prison, which was closed in 2006 after a scandal over the abuse of prisoners by US troops.

A spokesman gave no date for reopening the jail, but said a committee had been formed to oversee reconstruction.

He said part of the new site would be given over to a museum showing the crimes committed under the former regime of Saddam Hussein.

However, no mention will be made of the facility's more recent history.

Because only a functional democracy would do a thing like that.
The fact is the vast majority of Iraqis have wanted us out for years...
thinkprogress.org...
Showing pictures of the worst behaviour of U.S troops would only strengthen these "dangerous democratic opinions"

Besides such a display may make Iraqis officials feel uneasy about their own even more recent human rights abuses; i.e. those going on tomorrow and the days after.

What Iraqi museum would be complete without several wax models of naked American soldiers performing horrid acts on each other! As an added bonus, for a limited time only you get a free set of Iraqi photographers to stand guard taking pictures of the Americans...

Or was that just in my dreams?
